Bonnes Grâces

A restored and extended family home in NDG!

How to enlarge and modernize a charming 1950’s residence without spoiling it ? This is the challenge that this young family set for the remodelling of their new home. Located a short walk from Monkland promenade in the beautiful Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district, the building was not particularly appealing with its small gloomy kitchen, its narrow entrance and its outdated interiors. By building an extension for the dining room and master bedroom on the south side of the lot, the house enjoys many more generous views of the spacious backyard. All built-in furnishings, from the kitchen to the small office, closets and vanities, are finished in white oak, just like the new windows with their deep frames.
Outside, the dark blue stained cedar siding complements the typical Montreal red clay brick. The pitched roof follows the angle of the existing false mansard. The whole is harmonious, warm and welcoming. Decidedly, the young family is in heaven in this charming house from another century!
